Tata’s JTP Duo Gets More Kit And A Price Hike


The Tiago and Tigor JTP are now dearer by Rs 30,000 and Rs 10,000 respectively

 

  • Exterior changes include contrast-coloured auto-fold ORVMs and a piano black shark fin antenna.
  • They also get automatic AC and Tata’s ConnectNext 7-inch touch screen entertainment system.
  • There are no mechanical changes whatsoever.
  • The Tiago is now priced at Rs 6.69 lakh while the Tiago JTP retails for Rs 7.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Tiago and Tigor JTP were Tata’s attempt at budget fun-to-drive cars. While we were impressed by the skunkworks that went under the skin, it missed out on some paramount kit, pulling down chances of its way out of dealerships. Based on customer demand, Tata has now updated the JTP twins with more kit, but as expected, it comes at a price:

  Old Pricing New Pricing Difference
Tiago JTP Rs 6.39 lakh Rs 6.69 Lakh Rs 30,000
Tigor JTP Rs 7.49 lakh Rs 7.59 Lakh Rs 10,000

All prices ex-showroom, Delhi

First and foremost, both the cars are subject to no changes under the hood. They retain the same throaty 1.2-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol motor good enough for 114PS of power and 150Nm of torque. Transmission duties are taken care of by a 5-speed manual gearbox with the naught to 100 dash claimed to come up in 10 seconds. 

What’s new on the outside are two bits: contrast-coloured auto-folding outside mirrors and a piano black shark fin antenna (Tigor JTP). The main changes are focused in the cabin as they now gain an automatic air con ( Tiago JTP) and a 7-inch ConnectNext touchscreen infotainment system by Harman as opposed to the 5-inch unit. The system also supports connectivity platforms like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Meanwhile, a facelift for the standard Tiago and Tigor is due and is expected by the end of this year or at the 2020 Auto Expo. The JTP twins are also most likely to follow with these updates some time later. Competition for the JTP cars currently rises from the Baleno RS and the Polo GT TSI.
